Surfband Replacement Cost


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has ever replaced their surfband. I have a '20 Axis A24. The battery cover on the back of our surfband somehow fell off and the whole remote filled with lake water. How much are those to replace? For the record, I actually liked it because it takes crappy speed control and wedge adjustment out of the equation.

That must be the price for Surfgate WITH the Surfband, right?  (Who doesn't love proprietary tech?)

Yeah that’s the whole unit.....lol

I just talked to my buddy and he said he lost his and he believes it was like 300 to replace it.

Did you ever figure out how the battery cover popped off?  Is it possible the case was cracked?   Our boat was delivered last June, used the band twice and put it in the glovebox (we're all rookie surfers).  Late in the year tried it again and it wasn't working.  After pulling the boat in the fall, I brought the band in, pulled the battery cover, and discovered moisture inside. I pushed around on the plastic and then discovered a crack in the body.  I never remember hitting anything or forcing anything into it while in the glovebox. 

Is it possible there's also a crack in yours that allowed the battery cover to pop out?

I’m on my 3rd surfband in 5yrs, they just don’t last, always leak water in, I might try to silicone this one before using it, this is my last one under warranty, it had a $335.00 price tag in the box.
